I am eight weeks pregnant with my second child and am suffering from NVP. I have nausea all day long and am very tired. I was very sick with my first pregnancy and suffered post partum depression. I have a 2 1/2 year old daughter and I can't spend as much quality time with her when I am laying in bed every evening after work because I feel so sick. I worry how this will effect her and don't want to lose any bond with her. Thankfully my husband is terrific with her and she loves spending time with him. I really worry about whether my not spending lots of time with her right now is going to effect her feelings towards me. I am starting to feel depressed about that. Any advice would be appreciated!
You did not say if you were being treated, if not you should start right away and when you feel better , you will be able to spend more time with your daughter. Consult your doctor and if you live in North America, you can call our toll free number: 1 800 436-8477 where our specially trained counselors will give you information on how to treat this condition.
